10th Round.

Updated on June 13, 2017

The right hook is essential.

Tenth Round.

©-2017-Matthew F. Blowers III

I enter the graphite

battle of my wits

led by my muses

to a white square

ring bound.

An Eberhard veteran

of many other documented

conflicts scheduled

Fist clenched

around a

sharpened spear

lead tipped

and ready to strike.

Staring down

my lifelong nemesis

a Rock 'em Sock 'em

mental blockhead

who has left me reeling

in so many

other untitled bouts

of split decisons.

He swings

with a strong left

leaving an

exclamation mark

on my chances

as my thoughts

are derailed

and desert me.

But I counter

with a pure write

Scrabbling furiously

over the dead space

between us

till he tumbles

much like a toddler's

first grasp of gravity.

Expired even

as I am inspired

Joyously I am hoisted

on the shouders

of success,

clutching my

latest prize.

A puga-list of

poetic pontifications

declaring me

the champion

of puns.

My punchline

direct and

to the point

is noted now

as a knockout!
